Re: star burst brush for jewellery fashion photos

thanks palms1 I have downloaded the badsstars brushes. I have used it on a blank layer on top and applied Gaussian blur. Otherwise it looks very faked using the brush on its own. Any other cool suggestion would be welcomed.

Re: star burst brush for jewellery fashion photos

In Photoshop CS2 (I don't know about other versions), if you load the basic brushes (called basic brushes as a separate brush set), you have small starburst which is nice and irregular

Re: star burst brush for jewellery fashion photos

thanks. Cassidy, the irregular star brush is not on my CS-2 basic brush menu . Here I used badsstars brush with Gaussian blur radius of 0.6 because starburst in real life seems to have slight halo around it. Mmm maybe there is better way?

Singlo,

Maybe my brush set was renamed or something, but I found the same brush by loading Assorted Brushes, known as Starburst - Small

Re: star burst brush for jewellery fashion photos

thanks palms Karl's brush looks promising. I thought of one way of making it more realistic:

Apply all stars on a blank layer ,
Duplicate this layer and apply guassian blur on it.
Reduce the opacity of the duplicate layer on top until it shows soft edges around the stars. I am yet to try out though

The other random thought is to find a really realistic star burst in a real photo and extract it using mask or extraction in CS2. Then soften the edges and make it to as a customer brush.
